Topic: Just finished Silentium...

I've wrote to you before, I'm fairly certain you responded here too though the link escapes me. In any case, I just finished Silentium and the last 50 pages or so really tugged at my heartstrings.

You wrote it in such a way that I could actually feel what these characters were going through, especially the IsoDidact near the end. I also enjoyed your reference to a previous line spoken by 343 Guilty Spark from Halo: Combat Evolved.

"Last time, you asked me, if it were my choice, would I do it? Having had considerable time to ponder your query, my answer has not changed."

Finally I understand what GS was referencing. I'll definitely be reading through these books again and picking up copies of your other works too.

The only complaint I can honestly give is that I am sad that this wonderful trilogy is finally at an end. Thank you for these books, I hope to see many more and I most certainly hope to see you writing for the Halo Universe again.

Thanks for the kind words, Dave! The whole team worked very hard to incorporate major elements and solve major puzzles. And I'm sure there are quite a few left to solve!
